Guinea Hog Forge bladesmith E. Scott McGhee demonstrated blacksmithing and traditional knife making at the 2011 Lake Waccamaw Farm Days Festival in March.
For the second year in a row, Scott forged over green coal and was assisted by his two sons - Jacob and Conner.
In addition, we displayed hand-crafted knives made in the gas forge at home, as well as knife making supplies and items blacksmithed on site.
On Sunday Scott banged out a Joe Keesler style primitive. It sold in about 10 minutes, and the proceeds were donated to the Lake Waccamaw Boys and Girls home.
Devotion pays off. Scott forged a letter opener for a young man who watched vitually non-stop for 2 days.
We'll be demonstrating at Harmony Hall in Bladen County, NC this Saturday and at the Harnett County Regional Fair on May 6-7. Hope to see you there.
